Native-American Johnny States cut this Hammond burner in western PA back in the early '70s. Despite tiny sales, the record saw 2 releases on both Dink and Rendezvous, before falling into obscurity. Saxman Tommy Wills is no stranger to the music scene - in the 50s it was RnB, in the 60s it was jazz, in the '70s it was funk - like we have here. Tommy's been cutting records for 50 years and is still going strong.
